Capturing the Iconic Red Rocks Park and Amphitheater

6.92K Views1 Comments

The V1 Video Team made a site visit to Red Rocks Amphitheater and Park to capture video interviews and witness an ambitious drone-based reality-capture exercise to photograph and model the mountain park. The visualization team from engineering firm Kimley-Horn captured the area for the City and County of Denver, which owns and maintains the park. Autodesk and its partner 3D Robotics were on hand to demo their collaboration on SiteScan, which creates an automated workflow from drone capture to use within Autodesk’s modeling software. The mission had many purposes, including historical archiving of the park, modeling stormwater erosion, tracking trail maintenance, and building acoustics and lighting models for the amphitheater.
